Easy-to-wear lipsticks

Print Friendly

Queen Elizabeth I is historically credited with making lipstick popular – her bright red lips providing that famous contrast to her porcelain white face.

However, if you don’t have a royal servants taking care of your make up, wearing lipstick can be a bit of a hassle if it doesn’t stay put. Here are some great, easy-to-wear lipsticks and long lasting formulas that will make wearing lipstick a cinch.

L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Boosting Serum lipsticks contain a hydrating balm for your lips that is perfect for keeping your lips looking plump and pretty throughout the day. Coming in a variety of earthy, muted colours, this is a good day time lip product.

Find these at Boots for £8.69.

The M.A.C. range of lipsticks have been consistently popular with consumers because of their large range of shades, and the smooth application of this lipstick. It does glide on, giving you that glamorous event look. For longevity, blot the lipstick with tissue paper, use a little translucent powder to set and then reapply another layer.

Find M.A.C. lipsticks at Debenhams for £15.50-18.00.

It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Anti-Aging Lipstick Stain. This is a brilliant lip stain, shaped like a lipstick, hydrating like a lip balm, with a glint of shine like a gloss. It doesn’t bleed or fade and stays put on your lips.

Beauty.com sells the lipstick for $20.00 (£13.00 aprox) and ships internationally.

Laura Mercier Crème Lip Colour is that golden combination of a long lasting lipstick and a hydrating one. It’s a bit on the expensive side, but the easy application and the results are worth the price.

Find it at House of Fraser for £21.00.

Hourglass Rouge Liquid Lipstick is a matte lipstick that comes with a wand applicator for precise application and a reputation as sturdy as a Russian car. This lipstick is a fantastic option for eating out as it will stay put. Remember, this is a matte lipstick, so it will only accentuate chapped lips, so be sure to exfoliate them beforehand.

Find it at John Lewis for £23.00.
